Competition launched to design new wildflower centre

RIBA and wildflower charity seek designers for 'architecturally striking' centre

The search is on for an architect to design a new education and conference centre at the National Wildlife Centre near Liverpool.

The international competition, set up by the RIBA, is calling for expressions of interest to develop proposals for an ‘architecturally striking educational, conference and seed production complex'.

Backing the competition is Landlife, the wildflower charity, which already has £100,000 of funding for the competition provided through the Northwest Regional Development Agency.

Entries are invited from architects or architect-led teams, which will be judged anonymously at the first stage.

Six firms will then be invited to develop their design proposals and present them to a jury panel at interview. Each stage-two competitor will receive an honorarium of £6,000.
